When it comes to building up a social media presence it can be hard to know where to start. And once you know where to start it doesn’t make it any easier because then you have to put yourself out there! UGH! 

This is one of the most common roadblocks I see people run into, and it turns into the ‘I don’t know what to do so I’m not going to do anything’ paralysis trap. 

Putting yourself out there is scary. It’s vulnerable. It can be downright terrifying. 

Here’s a little trick to help you get started - you gotta get out of your own way and focus on how you can help people. We all have innate talents & gifts, weather you can make a mean chicken alfredo pasta, you’re amazing at organizing your kids activities or you’re super fit and can offer some valuable health & wellness insights. When you focus on how you can help people and make that the basis of your platform it allows you to get out of your own way and the people who follow you will stick around because they’re getting real value from your page. 

So here’s my question for you: 

What is the one thing that people tell you they admire about you? This is something that probably has been said to you more than once - maybe it’s your unique ability to learn things quickly or your confidence or how good you are at video games. Whatever it is - that’s the good stuff you can start with and once you get started you get MOMENTUM! Momentum is hard to start but easier to maintain.
